Pixel Coder helps web designers and developers convert their website's font-size values from fixed pixel measurements to relative Em and Percent values. This simple to use app also helps web professionals convert their point values in design comps to the equivalent values in pixels (and back again).
But why use relative values in your CSS in the first place?
Two big reasons:
- Relative font-sizes in your website's style sheet allow type to scale according to the end-users needs. If the end-user has set a default text size that's different than the browser default value, your relative font-sizes will scale up or down accordingly.
- It helps you write easy to maintain CSS. By having one font-size value for you Body element, you can code other elements' font-size values relative to the Body, allowing for only one change to be made when the text throughout a page needs to be tweaked.
